Rebecca Chang is a first year medical student at McMaster University and in her fourth year of playing Ultimate. As a part of her studies she’s doing advocacy project on injury management in Ultimate. Having toured with Lily, McMaster, and Lotus she’s well aware of the wear and strain that a season puts on our bodies. Many of us play with injuries caused either by overplaying, overtraining, or lack of preparation. What we need to understand is how to prevent injuries in the first place so that we can play our sport for a longer period.
Where we, the players, can help is by providing her with plenty of data for her survey of 10 questions. It’ll take a minute or two of your time and you’ll also have a chance to win something from VC as they’re sponsoring the survey.
